week 20: tile & exterior painting

Yuri of Art Touch Construction completed the tile work in the bath. Having laid the wall tile last week, he set the ceiling tile, placed the borders on the walls and ceiling and tiled the soap nook. He then tediously worked on the floor tile, making sure the accent borders and interior pattern were perfect. Yuri also installed both marble thresholds. He will return to do the backsplash at the wet bar when the cabs and shelving are installed. He has truly impressed us with his handiwork.

And a special thank you to Hilary of Dal-Tile for all her help in procuring the tiling materials.

Alex of Crestwood Inc. installed the last of the wood cabs. We can’t wait to have it trimmed out like the others. It’ll be fabulous.

Chuck of ecohaus floated the floor for the Marmoleum. He'll do one last finish coat, then install the flooring material. It’ll be exciting to watch him do the tricky border pattern. Stay tuned!

Dana and Darren of Guillory Construction spent a second week on the finish carpentry. They put the finishing touches on the stairs, added the handrail, installed the open shelving in the AV Room, cased and trimmed the doors and windows, installed jamb extensions with extra-deep stools, installed the closet shelves and rods and installed the picture rails. With all the beautiful work they’ve done, the interior rooms look more complete.

During the brief rain, Vitaly’s paint crew from Aspen Painting LLC moved indoors and started the millwork paint prep. Pablo and Pancho caulked and masked most of the interior before the sun returned. With the better weather, they were able to finish the majority of the exterior painting.

Tune in next time for more finish carpentry & interior trim prep!
